Ok had a very weird thought...LOL....I was thinking if i won a jackpot with a whole lot of disposable income....let's say 125 million after tax...What is something weird i could get into....Now I was watching t.v. and the show Storage Wars was on....I thought it would be funny to start buying storage lockers like the guys on the show.....What are some other reality shows could you think of that would be fun as someone who has some disposable income..Now you don't have to want to be ON the show or any for that matter...this is just a hypothetical now...DO NOT overthink it.....

    Staying on topic, weird is correct, if I had 125 million in disposable income I would be laying on a warm beach with a cold drink and tasty snacks nearby watching dolphins jump the waves.

    But if going through storage lockers is your thing, have at it.

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

        It would be an interesting hobby, no doubt, but I think I'd go mainly for fishing. Not really 'weird', but it's the only hobby/activity I'd get into the most besides computer building (I have plans that if I win, I'd build a PC for every family member).

                        Time travel.

                        Another would be to open a lottery store that sold way more than just tickets.

                        Everyday there would be a guest giving a class. One day would be a numerologist, another an astrologer, etc....

                        Also once in a while a lawyer or financial planner telling people what they really need to do should they hit.

                        There would also be talismans and such for sale.

                        I guess it might be like a brick and mortar version of LP's Mystical.

                        So as not to be buzzed hundreds of times a day by people looking for a bankroll to test their systems to do this you'd have to be a silent partner or somehow not let anyone know you had won a jackpot.

                        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                        Lep

                        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                              I have thought about buying every on old Mustang I can get my hands on and start doing restorations.
